Favorite Quote:
Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself.

A single flower
The color of blushing cheeks
Swaying in the breeze

A single highway
Newly paved and painted
As dark as oil

Monsters roaring past
Unnatural creatures
Of glass and metal

The bleed as they pass
Their black lifeblood spraying out
Across the pavement

Flowing into grass
Parched stems soaking it up
Gulping down poison

Tainting the flower
Sanguine petals veined with black
The lacework of death

Crumpling, folding
Grief, sorrow bending the stem
Leaves turn to powder

The blackness moves on
Oil engulfing the world
Blue and green turn black
